Plastic responses of male Drosophila melanogaster to the level of sperm competition increase male reproductive fitness
Evolutionary and plastic responses by males to the level of sperm competition (SC) are reported across widespread taxa, but direct tests of the consequences for male reproductive success in aExpand

Abstract Rapid diversification is common among herbivorous insects and is often the result of host shifts, leading to the exploitation of novel food sources. This, in turn, is associated withExpand

Adult Male Nutrition and Reproductive Success in Drosophila melanogaster
Abstract Explanations for the maintenance of variation in reproductive traits influenced by seminal fluid accessory gland proteins (Acps) in male Drosophila melanogaster include nontransitivity inExpand

The conditional economics of sexual conflict
Sexual conflict is a fundamentally important aspect of male–female interactions. In this opinion piece, we emphasize two approaches that warrant significantly greater attention. First, we review theExpand

The effects of male and female genotype on variance in male fertilization success in the red flour beetle (Tribolium castaneum)
The number of eggs fertilized by a male at any given copulation (fertilization success) is affected by a large number of factors. Male insemination and sperm competition success and various femaleExpand

Exposure to rivals and plastic responses to sperm competition in Drosophila melanogaster
Responses by males to the level of sperm competition have been documented across a wide range of taxa. Recent work in Drosophila melanogaster shows that males respond adaptively to the presence ofExpand

PATTERNS OF DIVERGENCE IN THE EFFECTS OF MATING ON FEMALE REPRODUCTIVE PERFORMANCE IN FLOUR BEETLES
Abstract Sexual selection can lead to rapid divergence in reproductive characters. Recent studies have indicated that postmating events, such as sperm precedence, may play a key role in speciation.Expand

QUANTIFYING THE LIFE‐HISTORY RESPONSE TO INCREASED MALE EXPOSURE IN FEMALE DROSOPHILA MELANOGASTER
Precise estimates of costs and benefits, the fitness economics, of mating are of key importance in understanding how selection shapes the coevolution of male and female mating traits. However,Expand

Female nutritional status determines the magnitude and sign of responses to a male ejaculate signal in Drosophila melanogaster
Ejaculate chemicals transferred from males to females during mating cause significant changes in female behaviour and physiology, but the causes of phenotypic variation in these responses is littleExpand

Divergence in replicated phylogenies: the evolution of partial post‐mating prezygotic isolation in bean weevils
By tradition, speciation research has been focused on processes leading to either premating or post‐zygotic reproductive isolation. The processes which generate isolation after mating but beforeExpand
